This is the most metal toddler on the planet

Heavy metal toddler at Maryland Deathfest

Most metalheads discover the joys of heavy music at a young age – whether it’s through friends at school, older siblings or movie soundtracks. However, this initiation into metaldom doesn’t usually take place until your teenage years, which is why we salute and throw our horns up to the toddler in the below video.

Getting deeply involved in the mosh at Maryland Deathfest, this little dude in his Stormtrooper shirt shows off his circle pit skills by running rings around guys more than twice his size, while Atrophy blast the main stage. We can’t remember our first mosh pit, but we were definitely old enough to stay up past 7pm.

Here’s the little guy in action!
